𝐌𝐄𝐀𝐍𝐈𝐍𝐆: A full moon in Sagittarius, as the third fire sign of the zodiac, represents a desire for change, flexibility, and exploration. Sagittarius seeks new ideas and knowledge, aiming to uncover deep truths. During a Sagittarius full moon, it can be an opportunity to let go of long-held beliefs that no longer serve you. It is also a good time reminisce about how much you’ve grown. This brings a sense of adventure and exploration to our lives and encourages us to seek out knowledge and expand our horizons both mentally and physically. It's a great time to take risks and pursue our passions with confidence and enthusiasm. Overall, the Sagittarius full moon in June 2023 is a time of growth, discovery, and embracing our inner wanderlust.
𝐖𝐇𝐀𝐓 𝐓𝐎 𝐑𝐄𝐋𝐄𝐀𝐒𝐄: This moon sheds light on emotional truth. Be cautious of over-intellectualization, laughing away your pain, and distancing yourself from your emotions. Acknowledging what you sense and accepting what’s beyond your scope of awareness is the first step to being present in your body. How does what you see, touch, taste, smell, and hear inform your emotions? What memories are brought up by the scent of maybe a former partner or seeing a text from an ex-friend?
𝐑𝐈𝐓𝐔𝐀𝐋: 5 Senses Meditation - This meditation is a mindfulness practice that involves focusing on each of the five senses - sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell - one at a time, in order to increase awareness and presence in the moment. By directing attention to each sense, one can cultivate a deeper understanding of their surroundings and inner experiences, leading to greater clarity and peace of mind.
5 senses meditation
The average person has over 6000 thoughts per day. That’s a lot of time spent thinking. How much of it do you spend thinking about the here and now?
This mediation helps bring you back into the body and into the present moment, the here and now. This is really good to practice:
when feeling anxious and extremely overwhelmed
to enhance the perception of the 5 senses by focusing on each one
to allow you to feel each sense more deeply.
to help you to drop into the present moment
to experience the world as it is happening around you
so you can notice your surroundings and allow you to experience life more fully
Find a comfortable stationary position. Take a few deep breaths and really feel yourself arrive in the moment
👁️ Identify 5 things you can see
Take a look around the space you are in.
Notice what is in your surroundings.
Notice colors and shapes,
Notice all things that your sense of sight can absorb right now.
:::: Now close your eyes ::::
👂 Identify 4 sounds you can hear
Keep a strong singular focus on sound, and try to identify four different sounds that you can hear right now.
🤚 Identify 3 things you can feel
The way your skin feels, texture of your clothes on your body maybe the floor beneath you.
This sense of feeling could also be coming from within. How does your emotion feel.
👃 Identify 2 things you can smell
Now, use your nose to identify two distinct smells. How can you use your sense of smell to drop you into a certain place and time?
👅 Identify 1 thing you can taste
Try to notice the taste buds on your tongue and what they are still holding onto. What taste lingers in your mouth?
You have now successfully tuned your body and mind into a place of mindfulness and awareness. By noticing the senses in your body, you have heightened your presence in this very moment. This guided meditation is one that you can connect with often to improve all of your senses.
By focusing on each of your senses, one at a time, you are heightening your awareness of each of the singular sensations. This, in turn, creates more clarity in your mind and physical body as you begin to notice the full expression of your senses.
